Hi! My Name is Christy and I live near Huntsville, AL. One question that most of my clients asks is, How/Why did you get into the massage business? It all started when I was in EMT school. One evening after class our instructor and few other students and myself were sitting around chatting and our instructor said his neck hurt so I rubbed it for him. He said that I should go to school for massage therapy so that I could get licensed and make money at it. He kept pestering me about it so the last week of EMT school I went to Virginia College in Huntsville, AL just to check it out and see what the costs were and about financial aide. About an hour later I came out signed up for school with classes starting the following week.
I started Virginia College in May of 2006 and Graduated in December of 2008 with an Associate's Degree in Therapeutic Massage. I took the National exam in April of 2009 but unfortunately I did not pass the first time. (that test was harder than my EMT national exam, LOL!) Some of my other classmates and I took a quick refresher course from our program director and retook the exam. I passed!! I received my Massage license in October 2009.
As I was looking for work, I stumbled onto some information in my local classified ads about Dr. Dot hiring in my area. I looked into it and thought it sounded like a wonderful opportunity. After doing an audition massage on Demun Jones from Rehab, I was invited to join the team and here I am! I do Deep Tissue massage, Swedish massage, Chair massage, Pregnancy massage, Child/Infant massage, etc.
So if you are or are going to be in the Huntsville area contact Dr. Dot to book me for your massage(s)! Thanks! I look forward to working on you!
“"My tour manager wanted me to tell you Leslie was great. Very professional. He has never had an hour massage or someone come to his room. It was a nice treat for him and he doesn't have FB or Twitter but wanted me to tell you how professional your company was. The Wailers will be using you exclusively"” The Wailers PA Michele V.
Yared enjoyed the massage very much!
Talked about it all evening.
Thank you again and I will contact you for any artist I will work with

“Dot Stein I've used your services twice the last 2 months.

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.

“Lars (Stockholm Dotbot) took care of the band-members and left all in awe!
He provided a table, towels etc which made it very easy to work with.
Very on point and definitely made for an amazing show at night - thank you again!
Romi (Prague Dotbot) came by, arrived early, was very well prepped (had her own table, scented candles, oils, towels) and had the brightest smile we'd seen in days!
She took care of the band-members who all were left amazed and startled by her touch ;)
Thanks Romana, def will hit you up next time round.
